The Native Woodland Survey of Scotland (NWSS), carried out between 2006 and 2013 has provided the first authoritative picture of Scotland’s native woodlands. It used field survey to identify the location, type, extent, composition and condition of all native and nearly native woods, as well as woods planted on ancient woodland sites (PAWS). This report gives a national overview of results – more information on the survey, a woodland map and supporting datasets can be found at: <a rel="external" href="/nwss" target="_blank">Native Woodland Survey of Scotland</a>.
